I am getting ready to plop down $400 for the teacher training course here at AURA. I still have some reservations about it though and was wondering if anyone could help. I've posted here before; some may remember earlier posts I've entered.

I live in the mid-west in a town of about 20,000. The only yoga here is offered at the Fitness center attached to the school. It is not a full time yoga studio so-to-speak.

I work on the road 5&6 days a week and am only available to teach classes on Sat & Sun.

I am realistic enough to realize that this arrangement is not ideal to starting a studio. I would like feedback on what some of the more experienced studio owners think about the possibility of getting started in a studio with only weekend participation on my part in the beginning. A weekend studio is what I am referring too.

Also, I need to know if there is even enough interest in a town this size to eventually replace an income of $60,000 per year in a town this size or is this a pipe dream.

I already have a space that will accommodate up to 9 people per class. This space costs me about $70.00 per month with the possibility of another larger space for another $50 to $70 per month. Currently I've been offering guided relaxation & meditation sessions; with some interest. I've not advertised it much other than hanging fliers in the grocery stores.

I would really like to be able to go home every night at some point in my life instead of being on the road all the time. I've had businesses in the past; one successful the other was a flop. The latter took years to pay off and I'm not privy to going through that again.

Anxious in SD,
